Attorney Andrew Sacks of Sacks Weston Diamond LLC in Philadelphia has served as a panelist for
a recent seminar presented by the Marijuana Policy Project (MPP). As the
only attorney to serve the State Level Coalition of the American Trade
Association for Cannabis and Hemp (ATACH), Mr. Sacks was invited for his insight, intuition, and unparalleled experience
in all matters marijuana law related. The seminar was focused on Pennsylvania’s
Medical Marijuana Act and the future applications of medicinal cannabis.
The Marijuana Policy Project was established in 1995 after it became clear
that current marijuana laws were not helping anyone. The group cites that
87% of marijuana crimes are for mere possession and that there are more
marijuana crime arrests each year than all violent crimes put together.
With so many Americans being incarcerated for years and paying thousands
in fines for a criminal violation that is arguably, if not objectively,
harmless, the MPP was one of the first nonprofit groups to begin lobbying
for big legislative changes. If you want to know more about the MPP, please

Knowing that the campaign for fair marijuana use legislation is only just
beginning, Attorney Sacks has kept busy and done all he can to bring attention
to this serious issue. In addition to serving as a panelist for the MPP’s
recent seminar, he also hosted a discussion for the Cannabis Career Institute
(CCI). This seminar discussed marijuana law, marketing strategies for
marijuana cultivators and medicinal laboratories, legalities of obtaining
a marijuana state I.D. card, and much more. Another all-day event is scheduled on
June 26th at the Courtyard Philadelphia South Navy Yard, where
Senator Daylin Leach will also be speaking.
Cannabis Career Institute is considered one of the world’s leading innovators of marijuana
education and marijuana schooling. CCI is there for entrepreneurs who
want to get into the business of medicinal and legal recreational marijuana
but also want to completely eliminate any risk of breaking the law. As
a renowned advocate for balancing marijuana law, Attorney Sacks is honored
to be able to conduct seminars on behalf of the CCI.
